Medical seats quota: Setback to TN as SC denies interim relief

Monday - October 26, 2020 11:18 pm , Category : EDUCATION
New Delhi, Oct 26 (IANS) In a setback to the Tamil Nadu government and the ruling AIADMK, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to grant any interim relief for grant of 50 per cent quota in medical seats surrendered by the state in all-India quota for under graduate, post-graduate and dental courses for 2020-21.
A bench comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ajay Rastogi dismissed the plea, seeking implementation of 50 per cent quota for the current academic year.
The Tamil Nadu government and the AIADMK had moved the apex court against the order passed by the Madras High Court, clearing the decks for OBC reservation under All India Quota (AIQ) medical seats in non-Central institutions.
It has also granted a time of three months to the Central government to take a decision on the issue of percentage.
The high court had held that on principle, there is no legal or constitutional impediment for extending the benefit of reservation to OBCS in the state surrendered AIQ seats of the UG/PG medical courses in the state-run medical colleges within Tamil Nadu, subject to any further directions or orders of the apex court.
Some of the petitioners had also sought a temporary stay on the admission process. It was also alleged that the Centre also did not follow its own policy of 27 per cent reserved seats for OBCs under the 2006 Act.
